I decided to try actual historical fiction, instead of alternate historical fiction: Rise to Rebellion by Jeff Shaara.
Four stars; although I probably would have given it five if I had been able to read it straight through.
The point of view jumps all around, following all the big names (and a couple of less big ones) to all the big scenes, giving nice context to all the vaguely remembered events of history. I was amused to have another viewpoint from that of the 1776 musical.

I have a bunch more historical fiction in the queue, both more Jeff Shaara and others, all on loan from my brother-in-law. Family is like a library, but the due-dates are better.
